    Hi [first_name]

    I am excited to announce that I am supporting 
    Children's Home Society of Washington in Walla Walla SweetHeart for Kids as a Fund and Friendraiser.

    The goal of this virtual event is to help provide awareness and funding for essential programming for some of Walla Walla's most vulnerable populations – families impacted by job loss and illness who are now facing even greater food insecurity and homelessness risks, children and adults in need of behavioral health services, and those in need of technology services to continue succeeding in school and work through these unprecedented times.
